"Inspired by Le Corbusier’s publications, Vers une Architecture(Towards an Architecture) and L’Art Décoratif d’Aujourd’hui(Today’s Decorative Arts), she applied for a job at his atelier in 1927, and was famously rejected with the line, “We don’t embroider cushions here” (Charming!).Read more in Apartment Therapy

CHALET IN MERIBEL LES ALLUE

The Atmosphere at Charlotte Perriand´s Chalet in Meribel les Allue

Between 1969 and 1961Charlotte Perriand designed and built herself a small chalet in Meribel les Allues in France’s Savoy region. Even at first glance it is apparent that the building is a private and intimate place, a place of refuge for the spirit. Nesting on the side of a mountain and overlooking a valley, it has two floors, both of which are accessible from the outside, thanks to the natural slope of the ground.A large east facing terrace forms one access to the garden, and during the summer becomes an invaluable outdoor living space. The chalet’s interior is very simple, with either wood or exposed stone, it keeps with the brutalist aesthetic that had characterized much of Perriand’s work with Le Corbusier.Read more...

Blurring the lines between the indoors and outdoors, the design for La Maison au Bord de l’Eau originally won second place in a 1934 L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui magazine contest but was never commissioned. That is, until now. On show during Art Basel in Miami Beach (3-8 December 2013), Perriand’s fluid, meticulously functional design was the talking point of the show. Read more in Yatzer
